What a wild ride this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been. It’s coming to a close, and it’s going out with a bang. On last week’s episode, Danielle Staub shocked Melissa Gorga and all of us. She revealed that Teresa Giudice was behind the hair pull that rocked Margaret Josephs’ world. The footage they showed was very damaging to Teresa. She looks BAD. How will she talk herself out of this one?
The second part of this episode is set to focus on Teresa reuniting with Joe Giudice in Italy. This marriage is in shambles, but it will be interesting to see them together in person. What will the vibe be? How will they interact with one another? So many questions. Joe has never dealt with this version of his wife before, and this is a very different Teresa. Good luck Joe!
Sadly, Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 is coming to a close. The ladies really came through for us this season. Well, most of them did, anyway. Dolores Catania and Melissa Gorga, I’m yawning in your direction. Neither of you deserves that second seat on the reunion couches, but I guess that’s seniority for you.
Danielle Staub brought more to the season and she’s not even an actual cast member. During last week’s Real Housewives of New Jersey episode, Melissa told Danielle that none of the Housewives want to hang out with her anymore. She even stretched the truth, indicating that Teresa Giudice was one of those people. Meanwhile, Teresa had been blindly standing up for Danielle. Well, in response, a scorned Danielle shared that the boutique owner told her to pull on Margaret Josephs‘ hair and that Teresa encouraged the idea. Initially, it seemed like Danielle was lying, yet again. However, we were all shocked by the flashback footage of Teresa giggling while she told Danielle “Do it, do it.”
Once again, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members through me for a loop with their reunion outfits. What was everyone thinking? Melissa Gorga stuck to her signature look: a plunging jumpsuit with a slicked-back ponytail and absolutely killed it. But other than Melissa, the looks were… ummm… questionable. To say the least.
Usually, the Real Housewives reunions have a theme when it comes to the dress code, with the ladies dressing in the designated color palette. I have no idea what direction the cast was given this season. None of these looks go together. At all. Yes, there are some sequins, but that really is the norm when it comes to a Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.
Oh the shade of it all! I’m not sure why Kim DePaola was never given a full shot on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She pretty much checks the boxes that require one to be on RHONJ. Fights with Teresa Giudice? Check. Shit-stirring gossip? Check. Curious hair extensions? Check. Why, if it weren’t for Kim D’s brick and mortar tribute to fashion, Posche, the high class ladies of New Jersey would have had to wait around for… Envy.
Kim truly is the gift that keeps on giving and she definitely doesn’t take anyone’s crap. Now Kim turns the special place she has in her heart for Teresa towards
Beverly Danielle Staub. Danielle, better known as Captain Hair Puller, has once again shown her true colors during the season. But will Danielle ever tire of potentially catching a case and putting her hands on other people? According to Kim D, all signs point to a big, fat nope.
Jennifer Aydin has been delivering the drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey this season. She called Jackie Goldschneider cheap because of the birthday party that she gave her kids. Then, once Jennifer discovered that Jackie had family money, subjected Jackie to a financial interrogation that would make a detective proud. Jennifer squabbled with Margaret Josephs about whether Jennifer really has a job as a stay at home mom, or just has a nanny.
Once again, Jennifer and Melissa Gorga ended up fighting at a restaurant. Jennifer tossed her silverware at Melissa while Melissa was defending RHONJ co-star Jackie. I don’t think that Jennifer and Melissa will ever be besties. I also don’t think that the RHONJ cast is ever destined to finish a meal in peace. Once Jennifer swigs that tequila, all bets are off! I think that the only person Jennifer hasn’t had a beef with is her bestie, Teresa Giudice.
One of the most shocking moments on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was the altercation between Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub in a clothing boutique. Teresa Giudice and Danielle approached the other New Jersey Housewives to tell them to stop talking about Danielle. Words were hurled back and forth, and Margaret poured water over Danielle’s head.
That didn’t cool off Danielle’s temper. She dumped the contents of Margaret’s purse into a lit candle. And just before leaving, Danielle grabbed Margaret’s ponytail and gave it a vicious tug. Of course, when Danielle left, Teresa went with her, but later returned.
Here we go again with Jennifer Aydin. It’s hard to read about any gossip coming out of this season’s Real Housewives of New Jersey that doesn’t involve Jennifer. She’s bringing so much drama to the show. I’m having a hard time keeping up with all of her shenanigans. Isn’t that the whole point of Housewives though? That’s an obviously rhetorical question because we all know the answer is a resounding YES.
Jennifer has made no secret of who she is (at least I think) when it comes to the show. She’s shown us her extended family and roots back in Turkey. She let us in on what her home life is like, which heavily features chasing after the needs of five children.
How are we feeling about this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey? The show got off to a slow start, there has been plenty of fighting as of late. Which is all I really care about, let’s be honest. Besides the obvious choice of Danielle Staub, there has been one standout when it comes to being the center of all the drama: Jennifer Aydin. We already spent the better part of the season with her griping about Jackie Goldschneider’s kid’s birthday party being too cheap for her taste. When Melissa Gorga dared to come to Jackie’s defense, Jennifer ended up tossing cutlery at her to get her attention, prompting a whole new fight. Last season we saw a similar pattern with Jennifer who, fueled with tequila, went after Melissa by brandishing a broken wine glass on a particularly explosive vacation fight. One thing’s for sure, Jennifer is no punk.
As for this season, there’s been plenty of tension between Margaret Josephs and Jennifer and let’s just say neither of them are handling it with much grace. I’m not sure exactly why these two started beefing but it’s been like oil and vinegar, ahem, oil and water ever since. I do think it’s the fact that Jennifer is constantly sticking up for Teresa, who continues to stick up for everyone but Margaret. At least that’s what I think.
